How to identify the quality of the faucet

Posted on October 24 2022

The faucet is the main source of our domestic water. When we buy a faucet for our home, we must choose good quality. Poor quality faucets are not used for a long time, and are prone to problems such as looseness, leakage, rust, etc. Especially in the case of kitchen water, the water quality is very demanding, so the quality of the faucet is also very important.

How to identify the quality of the faucet

  1. Identify the brand and identify the brand with after-sales service. More formal brands will have brand logos, quality assurance and after-sales service on the packaging.
  2. Observe the appearance, the surface coating of the faucet should be as bright as a mirror. Put the faucet in a sunny place. If the surface of the faucet has no oxidation spots, no pores, no leakage, bubbles and burn marks, and the color is relatively uniform without burrs and grit, this is a better product. Another method is that after pressing the faucet with your finger, the fingerprints will quickly disperse without any traces, and there is no obvious adhesion of dirt.
  3. The main body of the faucet is generally made of brass. Products made of brass are very guaranteed in terms of electroplating quality. The better the quality of brass, the better the electroplating quality will be, and the less likely the surface of the faucet will be corroded. In order to reduce costs, some manufacturers use zinc alloys instead of brass. The country allows the use of zinc alloy materials instead of brass, but the quality of zinc alloys is relatively poor, and the corrosion resistance is not very strong. We can weigh the weights, those made of brass are heavier, and those made of zinc alloy are lighter.

Zinc alloy and copper alloy faucet which is better

It is better to choose copper faucets, which are also a bit more expensive than zinc alloys. The zinc alloy faucet should be exactly galvanized cast iron faucet, and the corrosion resistance of copper is much better than that of galvanized cast iron. Galvanized cast iron faucets are generally useless for a few years, but copper faucets can last much longer. Many copper faucets have been used for hundreds of years and are still intact. Copper is relatively soft and ductile, so if the faucet leaks a little, just tighten it a little and it won't leak. This is also one of the reasons for the long service life of copper alloy faucets.

What material is good for the kitchen faucet

The material of kitchen faucets is generally brass, but due to the characteristics of the kitchen environment, pure copper faucets are not necessarily the best choice. This general outermost layer is electroplated and should be cleaned to prevent the internal brass from corroding and rusting. However, cleaning the faucet with detergent can easily damage the electroplating layer of the faucet, causing the faucet to be corroded and rusted, so the all-copper faucet is not suitable for kitchen use. Compared with pure copper faucets, faucets made of high-quality 304 stainless steel have the characteristics of lead-free, acid resistance, alkali resistance, corrosion resistance, no release of harmful substances, and no pollution to tap water. Good for drinking water in the kitchen. Moreover, the stainless steel faucet does not need electroplating and is not easy to rust. Its hardness and toughness are more than two times higher than those of copper products, and it is easy to clean, but the price is relatively high.
